Marathon_Causeway If you ran the Miami Marathon this weekend, the last thing on your mind might be to run it again.

But if you want a deal, now is the time to act.

The first 200 registrants for the marathon and first 200 for the half marathon get a 50 percent discount, marathon managing director Gaby Pozo said. That' s $27.50 for the 13.1-mile race and $40 for the full marathon.

According to the Miami Herald:

"The next 200 runners who register for each event get a 40 percent discount, followed by a 30 percent discount through 11:59 p.m. Feb. 3.

' ' Same place, same time,' ' said Pozo, who still was on a running organizer' s high a day after getting little sleep because of the massive work involved in organizing Sunday' s event.

' The race is a thrilling experience for everybody. About a week ago, I walked into the office and told everyone, `This is the best week of the year.' Sunday was the culmination of all our hard work, but come Monday morning, we' re hurting physically.' '

More than 12,000 participants finished Sunday' s marathon and half marathon. Pozo said organizers are in the early stages of trying to plan something special in conjunction with the Super Bowl."
